committee, congressman mike rogers of michigan. >>> then after the election, will washington get anything done? talks start on how to avoid the fiscal cliff, as mitt romney draws fire from fellow republicans by accusing the president of doling out, quote, gifts to minority groups in exchange for their vote. what's the fallout and the future of the gop? with us, tea-party backed congressman raul labrador, tom friedman, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, republican strategist mike murphy, and nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. with the president's national security team under fire over the petraeus resignation and the benghazi attacks, the president arrived on the world stage this morning for a summit in east asia, and he's got new worries on his mind about the prospect of a war in the middle east as israel and palestinian militants get closer to the brink this weekend. israe
questions on "meet the press" and also mike rogers, the chair of the house intelligence committee did as well. let's play a little bit of lindsey graham. >> this white house mislead the american people about national security events? i think they might simply because when the bin laden raid occurred they leaked every detail about the raid. we heard detailed about classified information to make this president look good, so if they would leak classified information to make him look good would they withhold information to prevent him from looking bad. >> the republicans are not going top drop this and, in fact, on "meet the press," mike rogers raised an entirely new subject. he suggested that there should be questions asked about whether, since eric holder the attorney general knew about the petraeus situation, whether in some informal way that was communicated to the president? let me ask you first, mark, what about that suggestion? >> well, look, this issue is not become a bipartisan yet in the skepticism you hear from lindsey graham and john mccain. it's a clear division between the t
enormously, and i don't buy it. and i don't buy the intel community did a great job. i like mike rogers and dianne feinstein. but to say the intelligence committee -- community did a good job, what about the months before this attack? what about the rise of al qaeda in benghazi? what about the british ambassador closing the consulate in benghazi because it was too dangerous for the british? what about the red cross leaving? what about all of the warnings coming out of benghazi? did the cia tell the president that benghazi is falling into the hands of al qaeda? and i blame the president more than anybody else. susan rice is a bit player here. was he informed of the june attack on our consulate where they blew a hole -- where 40 people could go through? was he aware of the august 15 cable where stevens was saying we can't withstand a coordinated al qaeda attack? there are 10 militia groups all over benghazi. i blame the president for making this a death trap. i blame the president for not having assets available to help these people for eight hours. we need a select committee not only to

special scrutiny? >> as of today, mike rogers for the first time fipgering one point of the national security council the deputies' committee of the council. >> it went up to the deputies committee. what i found fascinating, my role here in my mind to say was there intelligence failure and how to prevent it from happening again. >> reporter: republicans are determined that secretary rice testify and they want to hear from petraeus again in open sigs session. >> heather: doug, thanks. >> gregg: scott walker joining 17 other republican governors rejecting a major provision of the healthcare reform law. governors refusing to set up state run online health insurance markets for where consumers could purchase insurance but it's going to be up to the federal government to create them. here is governor walker explaining it. >> state run partnership defer to the federal government the state run option is state in name only. we would rather have the federal government as much as it pains us believing in federalism and not incur the potential cost to our taxpayers that would expose us to. >> g
at the request of the house intelligence committee which is chaired by a republican mike rogers, who wanted to know what he could say publicly that would reflect the secret briefing that he had just received. so the talking points were created -- if you leave open the likelihood that these were terrorist attackers but on the question of how the attack came together, the talking points are agnostic, they use the word "spontaneous" at one point and they certainly don't mention this al qaeda link. so the issue is should that classified detail which had been briefed to congress before the talking points were prepared, should have been in the talking points? you can argue that backwards and forwards that they had rnsz to believe the sources that allowed them to know about al qaeda were worth protecting and so they took them out and there wasn't any squawk at the time from the republican committee chairman who received the talking points. on the larger question here of wlf the obama administration before the election had an interest in minimizing the public's understanding that al qaeda still pos
with mike rogers from michigan. >> which brings me to the other mike rogers. believe it or not, the house republicans have two guys named mike rogers who could be committee chairmen. the mike rogers from michigan and the mike rogers from alabama who also wanted homeland, and then the third candidate is -- i'm forgetting. >> [inaudible] >> mike mccall. exactly right from texas. former federal prosecutor from texas. who actually, i think, we think might be the front runner, i think. be interesting to see if we say that in here. foreign affairs is the other one where there will be a contested race. the incumbent chairwoman, she will step down meaning there will be no automatic women in chairmen's roles next year on the house side. ed royce from california wants the job, so does chris smith from new jersey who has a little bit more seniority, a lot more seniority, but his advocacy for human rights, fighting human rights is actually a negative among some of his colleagues. so to his record -- so, too, his record the last time he got to chair a committee which was the normally-obscure veterans
that sends waves in the intelligence community. mike rogers has questions about the surroundings of huckabee start necessary two questions. >> tonight on huckabee. >> it doesn't matter if you are black or white or hispanic or asian american. cumake it >> three-quarters of the hispanic vote. south carolina lindsay graham. and david petraeus suddenly steps down. north carolina congresswoman sue myrick on how the resignation impacts the investigation. benghazi attack. >> because of your honor 36 men are alive because of your courage fallen americans came home. >> we salute sergeant dacota myers. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [ applause ] >> thank you. thank you very much. welcome to huckabee from it is fox news studios in new york city. i have a great new recipe i tried out this week for fryed crow. i have been eating a lot of that lately. like a lot of conservatives across the land, i thought romney would be elected president and i was wrong so were most of the conservative observers and comment ators. let's be clear it was not the choice i was hoping for, but yo
changes in the original statement. >> and that was congressman mike rogers and senator dianne feinstein reacting to testimony they heard from petraeus on friday, privately behind closed doors before those committees saying he knew from day one the attack on 9/11 was terrorism in libya. but he said, someone changed the wording and took out a reference to al-qaeda, from the final draft of talking points. he says, he just doesn't know who that was. doug mcelway is live for us in washington. it sounds like congressional republicans are interpreting the cia talking points very differently than the democrats are. >> that's absolutely right, harris, republicans are convinced that somebody in the white house or in the administration changed the talking points that came out of the cia. changed them to hide the fact that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11, perpetrated by al-qaeda at a time when the obama campaign was boasting about al-qaeda's diminished capabilities. democrats appeared to be circling the wagons around the u.n. ambassador susan rice and
heads the house intelligence committee, mike rogers himself, has used that tactic. take a listen to this. >> you think the president should have been told before election day? >> i'm not sure the president was not told before election day. >> you think -- that's news, that the president knew before election day. >> i didn't say that. i said i don't know. i find it -- we just have to ask the question. i hope he'll come out and talk to us about it. >> there we are, clarence, he's only asking questions. for instance, some people may wonder if mike rogers fit for his position as intelligence committee chair as he seems to be using it purely for partisan gain. i'm not saying he is, i'm just asking the question, clarence. >> just asking the question. doesn't this sound a lot like the whole birth certificate scam when donald trump and others were saying i'm not saying that he wasn't born in hawaii, but where is the proof that he is? and can we believe that birth certificate? you can go around and around the mulberry bush on this for days and weeks and i think a lot of president obama's oppositi
from michigan -- >> and another one with intelligence, mike rogers from michigan. a fourth. >> the other mike rogers -- the house republicans have two guys named mike rogers to the be committee chairmen. the mike rogers from michigan, select intelligence, and from alabama, who also wants homeland. and the third candidate is -- i am forgetting. huh? mike mccall, from texas. former federal prosecutor from texas. actually, might be the front runner. i think. it will be interesting to see if we say that in here. foreign affairs is the other one where there will be a contested race. the incumbent chair woman, she will step down, meaning there will be no automatic women in chairman's role on the house side. ed royce from california want the job and so this chris smith from new jersey, who has a little more security -- a lot more security, but his advocacy for human rights -- fighting human rights is actually a negative among some of his colleagues, so to his record last time he got to chair a committee, the normally obscure veterans affairs committee, he went counter to republica
committee mike rogers is out of the country. so when he gets back next week i'm told they will talk about procedures. whether it means inviting him again or they do have the option of subpoenaing general petraeus to testify. i personally think, greg, he should. >> greg: somebody else wasn't looking forward to him testifying. president is blaming this on richard gere classic film "unfaithful." he blames everything on movies. timing is part of the story. obama is getting used to this. i think if it's a coincidence that happened before the testimony. new orleans happening on december 31 -- new year's eve happening on december 31 a coincidence. will the media sink in the libya story? this will be the story. not four dead. which is bad. i do believe in coincidences. this is a little strange. only in washington with k a guy are a -- can a guy with a combover have a scandalous affair. >> bob: i find it mind boggling that a man goes through this with his wife that there would be suspicion whatsoever this is anything do with the hearings. anybody who suggests that? what do you think he did? held b
out who made changes in the original statement. mike rogers says he knows where the changes were made. >> it worked its way up through the system of the so-called talking points which everyone refer. my role is how do we prevent it. deputy committee pint tees administration that's where the narrative changed. >>> the white house deputy national security advisor said the only change the white house made to change the world consummate to the word diplomatic facility. many congressional investigators simply do not believe it. >> it is time now to look who is talking. the continued investigation into benghazi is our big talker this morning. that is what king and graham are talking about. >> he is critical of ambassador susan rice for five different shows. it was closed spontaneous after last year's hearing on the incident she defended her criticism of the ambassador. >> she had access at the state department. she could have had briefing by the security council and would have known the talking reports have been watered down and there was a state where she had clear oppression that this was
points. the testimony before congress has been surveyed. mike rogers says it has to be the white house because everybody else is testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i agree. i'm sure the white house were present if and the national security agency counsel had his marching orders. >> for his part says part of the confusion here, primarily, i believe, it is safe to say between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 and what he said over the past few days to congress represents what happens when you try to avoid tipping off terrorists. do you buy that? >> according to congressman ki king, it certainly indicated that petraeus lied in his first testimony. lou: produce pretty straightfors she presented the truth to congress. is it possible for a military man, head of the intelligence agency to decide, take it upon himself or herself the good of the country and misrepresent reality to the united states congress? >> don't know what type of pressures were brought on them, but certainly based on what congressman king has reported in the open press, it certainly
it clear their ranges in the talking points, testimony has been surveyed and mike rogers said it has to be the white house everybody else testified. >> by a agree. i am sure the white house representative council had marching orders. lou: and petraeus said part of the confusion between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 represents what happens when you back the terrorists. >> according to congressman came -- king is indicated that petraeus lied during the first testimony. >> and misrepresented the truth to congress. is it true -- possible for a man had of the agency to take it upon himself to misrepresent reality to the venice states congress? >> i don't know what type of pressures were born on him but congressmen king and the open press it appears that way. lou: pivoting to the pacific obviously now with southeast asia you see a political motivation for foreign policy issue. >> this is the washington game with the scandal brewing, i get out of town. >> about the president using the language of the former military government to refer to myanmar? i know wh
mike rogers. everyone else has testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i do agree. and the deputies committee, i'm sure the white house representatives of national security from the national security agency council had their orders. lou: general david petraeus says for his part, one of the confusing things -- confusion between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 and what he said over the past few days in congress, it represents what happens when you try to avoid tipping off terrorists. do you buy that? >> according to congressman king, it indicates that betray d petraeus deadlock. lou: is appropriate for a military man to take upon himself or herself for the good of the country and misrepresent reality united states congress. >> certainly based on what congressman king has reported in the open press something of the like. lou: specifically, it means that he is now in southeast asia. you see the more political motivation of geopolitical foreign policy issues. >> , well, this is the washington game. when you have a scandal brewing in washi
colleagues are vying for the gavel, including congressman mike rogers of alabama, mike mccall of texas and candice miller of michigan. and congressman king speaking out about the responsibility of u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice taking over as secretary state. the congressman said today on meet the press he approved of her performance as ambassador to the u.n., but feels she mishandled the response to the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. meanwhile, senator john mccain right now would oppose rice's confirmation says he could change his mind. still, he and senator lindsey graham says that rice needs to clear up her stance on the benghazi attack. >> and she could give everyone explaining their position and actions they took and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> when she comes over, if she does, there'll be a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others, but i do not believe the video is the cause. >> harris: of course, he's talk about that a video at first the white house says triggered all of this critical of the islam
the house intelligence committee. on "meet the press" mike rogers made a controversial statement over who knew what president about the petraeus scandal. >> do you think the president should have been told before election day. >> i'm not sure the president wasn't told before election day. the department of justice didn't notify the president. >> that's news. the president knew before election day. >> i didn't say. that i i don't know. >> there is no evidence of that. there is no evidence. >> joining me is associated press correspondent kimberly dozier who covers intelligence and special operations. welcome back to the show. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> any reason to believe what that chairman rogers is on to something that the president knew about the affair before the election? >> that was a question asked by intelligence committee members this week. when he did know? the white house says he was informed the thursday after the elections and they said they couldn't let them know the investigation was going on as water of watergate procedures put in place to make sure the people
community chairman mike rogers saying he wants an explanation from clapper himself. eli lake is a national security reporter. these weren't small players who went before capitol hill. it was clapper, it was the acting director of the cia, the head of the national counter terrorism center. and what pete king told us is they all said we don't know who took died out of the talking points, we don't know who took terrorism out, including clearp. then a report comes out with clapper saying, it was me. >> reporter: i have done some reporting and i can tell you clapper personally des moines change the talking points. as i understand what happened was that initial reports from the cia were it was died and al qaeda linked affiliates lining ansar al-sharia. then, and then what what go out in the classified format. in terms of the public format they were concerned about getting situation where you are in an investigation and you create potential for a false confirmation. so if you say it's al qaeda and you are not 100% sure within 72 hours or so, at least by their logic they are saying they didn't wan
when he came on our show among other, and mike rogers attested to that. and then a couple days later his office came out and said, it was us. we were the ones who changed the talking points to take out al-qaeda. and then mike romers said -- mike rogers, mr. clapper, can you explain why you just told us it wasn't you and you had no idea who did it? so that's why i asked if she gave you a name of who briefed her. >> no. we have not been getting a name, but i would say, megyn, that i still think that there needs to be more sufficient answers as to what agency changed the talking points and who did that, and those are some of the questions we have answers -- we expect answers to. and also why they did that. it's absurd to me to think that you would omit the reference of al-qaeda. so we didn't want to tip al-qaeda off? and particularly since it's very important that the american people not be left a misleading impression which is what happened here. and not only did it happen, if the intelligence community knee why buy the 22nd this was wrong, how come we weren't told sooner and why didn'
in some capacity? >> jamie, i think he has to. now, i'm a member of that committee and mike rogers is the chairman of the intelligence committee, but i strongly believe that general petraeus has to testify, if not this week, the following week or sometime very soon. it's not the cia director that has to testify, it's the person who was involved at the time of benghazi and that was david petraeus. mike morelle was the number two man, but the person who came and briefed congress, the man involved in it, both before benghazi, during benghazi and after benghazi, and who was -- stated this was not a terrorist attack, it was a spontaneous demonstration caused by the video, that was general petraeus and to find out how to reach that conclusion when his people on the ground were saying it was a terrorist attack, was there influence by the white house, and who was he in tact with, and susan rice-- >> what about that, what do you think he knows specifically and do you think he's the one that provided the information where susan rice went out and told everybody, no, no, video, it's due to a v
news that chairman mike rogers was briefs and rogers had serious questions and concerns about the circumstances surrounding it manage that we are keeping an eye on. we don't know who knew what and when and questions of having to do the investigation on september 11 and the attack on benghazi. they are looking to see if david petraeus will sit and talk with law makers any possibility of that? >> not this week. but those on capitol hill are making it clear they want to hear from the general in the future. >> i hope we have to subpeona the four star and former cia director. if he won't comcolhe will be subpeona. >> he previously told law makers that the benghazi attack was over a protest to a movie against islam. they want to know why petraeus said that initial low. petraeus has been married to his wife holly since 1964, he said the affair was unacceptable and showed poor judgment. >> molly with praking news. and thank you very much. >> and you know, we have talked about the great loss it would be to lose the head of the cia and this particular person. we'll want background now o
that point. she's going to be on my show today at 1:00 because she is very concerned as is mike rogers. mike rogers is a former fbi agent, and he did not know. you know, i was calling his staff and her staff on thursday when we first got wind of this. and we worked all night making more and more calls. and they said, what are you talking about? this is crazy. >> wow. >> it was only after we reached a very high level that we even to found -- and she found out about it from press calls like mine. >> unbelievable. john? >> i'm with richard on the sense that i feel like the number of questions really outweigh the number of answers to the point where it makes you a little bit wary about offering lots of u n pontificatory analysis. if you step back and put it in context which you started to do at the beginning, this happens on the eve of an election. again, among the many questions, jane mayer has a piece that raises a lot of these questions. it's amazing that eric cantor knew something was going on, not to come forward to it. there could have been great political advantage in raising this issue.
, was there some kind of coverup to protect the cia and why would mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and dianne feinstein chairman on the senate side not be informed of an ongoing investigation. >> bret: that's where i was getting to. the fbi is investigating. dianne feinstein calls it a lightning bolt this weekend. she didn't know about it. and the intel chairs didn't know about it. bill? >> what strikes me the most is broadwell gives this speech october 26th. she was talking about how general petraeus or director petraeus is reacting to it on september 11th to september 12th, right? she seems to know. i mean she says she knows. maybe she is making it up. she seems to he know more than is publicly available, i think, about what the cia's station chief told the cia director on september 12th. let's look at the official time line in this event. the official time line is that the ar. affair had long ago ended. official time line general petraeus had been rather angry that mrs. broadwell was harassing this third woman, other woman. the whole thing is over. what is the truth? w
:30, house intelligence, chairman mike rogers, he will be grilled. he has pertinent information -- >> greta: will they be tough on him? there is a lot of deference? on the other hand, he does have the information and he did make the horribly inconsistent statement from what the station chief, we are told, said within 24 hours. >> look, the cia has information, the state department has information, the white house has information. if the president's going to live up to his word to be open and transparent, provide that information. if the ambassador rice didn't have -- if he says, she didn't have the information, she went off the information hashe had -- whoa prepared that information? >> greta: i thought he threw herurn the bus, to make it look like she never had an independent thought, she took marching orders and went right over there. really? >> he was so offended that we are asking questions. that's the role of congress. you know what, mr. president, if you don't like it, show us the information that she was gleaning from and tell us who prepared it. >> greta: this would have gone away f

for senator mike rogers and lindsey graham to throw out these political grenades, almost testing to see if they can explode. >> the reason that you're finding lindsey graham do that is because he's now in cycle, which means he's up for re-election. notice that prior to a month ago, if you will, lindsey graham wasn't that much in the press on these issues. he was very quiet, and he was out advocating for governor romney to be president of the united states. all of a sudden, they find an opening. guess what? lindsey graham is utterly terrified as the senior senator from alabama against someone. i'm not surprised by something like that. the question is if they want tovp an investigation, vote to have one. let's have the investigation, and shut the hell up until the investigation is final and done. then if there's a problem, say there's a problem. >> quickly, rachel, can they get to the bottom of who changed the talking points? is that something -- again, i was watching "morning joe," and there was a difference of opinion if you can pinpoint that kind of information. >> i think they'll keep
